In 7 Men and the Secret of their Greatness, New York Times best-selling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted short portraits of widely known (but not well-understood) Christian men --- each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues, in the truth of the gospel.
Written in a beautiful and engaging style, 7 Men addresses what it means (or should mean) to be a man today - at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life. What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change-agent, and wise man? What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity - especially at times when the culture and the world run counter to those values?
Each of the seven biographies represents the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong --- in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men. Each of the seven men profiled - George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson- call the reader to a more elevated walk and lifestyle. One that embodies the gospel in the world around us.
